WHAT ARE FACIAL FILLERS?
Facial fillers help to diminish facial lines and restore volume and fullness in the face. As we age, our faces naturally lose subcutaneous fat. The facial muscles are then working closer to the skin surface, so smile lines and crow’s feet become more apparent. The facial skin also stretches a bit, adding to this loss of facial volume. Other factors that affect the facial skin include sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Juvéderm Ultra Plus XC, Vollure, Volbella and Voluma XC are gel facial filler products made of hyaluronic acid which are responsible for youthful looking skin. These products work instantly and are ideal for the treatment of many areas with facial volume loss. They are extremely effective at removing dark circles under your eyes, volumizing cheeks and lips, and filling in the nasolabial folds (lines between the nose and mouth) as well as the marionette lines (lines between the mouth and chin).
Restylane, Lyft, Refyne and Defyne are also hyaluronic acid fillers which restore volume in a different way than the Allergan fillers. Together we can discuss your needs after your complimentary consult. The Refine and Define products are meant to soften expression lines and improve your overall dynamic lines.

WHAT ARE THE PRE-TREATMENT GUIDELINES?
A few simple guidelines before your treatment can make a difference between a good result and a fantastic one:
-If you have a history of herpes (cold sores) with an outbreaks more than 4 times a year it is recommended that you are pretreated with medication. This office recommends Valtrex 2GM the day before or the day of the treatment and then another 2GM’s 12 hours after the first dose. **Please let us know that you need a prescription if you do not have this medication on hand.**
-If you develop a cold / flu, cold sore, blemish, or rash, etc. in the area to be treated prior to your appointment, you must reschedule (we will not treat you).
-It is recommended, if you have a special event or vacation coming up, schedule your treatment at least 2 weeks in advance.
-It is recommended you discontinue use of Aspirin, Motrin, Gingko Biloba, Garlic, Flax Oil, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, or any other essential fatty acids at least 3 days to 1 week before and after treatment to minimize bruising and bleeding.
-It is recommended that you avoid: alcohol, caffeine, niacin supplement, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates (you may eat fruit), spicy foods, and cigarettes 24-48 hours before and after your treatment. (All of these factors may increase risk of bruising)
-It is recommended you discontinue Retin-A two (2-3) days before treatment to avoid increased redness and irritation.
